Marteen, I used Vallejo Model air color and Winsor&Newton Galeria Acrylic.
It's a little complicate but as I started with this recipe, I follow it at each step of painting :
(From right to left on the picture)

Two coats of Vallejo Surface Primer (mix of 70 605 German Red Brown and 70 624 Pure red) ratio 50/50 - applied using an airbrush
One coat of Vallero Model Air 71.084 Fire Red mixed with Game ink 72 086 (ratio 50/50) - applied using an airbrush
Then three coats of Windsor&Newton Crimson with a little part of Burnt Umber - brushed, very diluted
and at the end three or four coats of Vallejo 71.084 Fire Red mixed with 71.003 Red (ratio 50/50) - applied using an airbrush
I think it's the Fire Red that gives the slightly darker color...

Thanks to all who follow the progress of my build.
I was able to advance on the laying of the boxwood panels. For the 20 small side panels, no particular problem, they position themselves on top of the thwarts.

At the stern, I photocopied the plan and cut out the useful parts to precisely determine the position of the panels.

A piece of wood of the right height quickly shaped will help to install the panels.

Time to add the friezes.

I finished laying the paper friezes .

I just built quickly some jigs using the inner shape of the panels. A small hole, a toothpick, a little sanding stroke once the assembly done and we have a help to cut the rounded shapes of the friezes and to ensure they are well in place once glued.

The iron strap was glued. It is composed of three parts. The seams between each length was filled with some modelling epoxy.

The whole is sanded with fine-grit sandpaper and receives some touching up of paint. The bolts have been simulated.
I still have to apply some rust brown weathering powder to the strip.

The resin castings are in place.

I will start now to carve the Queen Anne cypher.
Happy New Year everyone !
